>> reporter: diana and wayne reed did everything together. they ate meals together, vacationed together, danced together, and, of course, raised their two sons, erik and kevin, together. so, 27 years ago, when wayne was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, known as a.l.s. or lou gehrig's disease, they fought that debilitating disease together, too. diana was wayne's primary caregiver, so it came as a complete shock when the 56-year- old died suddenly on october 3 from fungal meningitis. it was an even bigger shock when wayne and her friends were told diana had been injected with a contaminated steroid medication made at a compounding pharmacy in massachusetts. wayne has the same rare slow growing form of a.l.s. as physicist stephen hawking, so he has trouble speaking. but his mind remains sharp and has not been affected.
